    Can anyone tell me if it is proper to conduct chart audits in SNF facilities for the purpose of Risk Adjustment. I have a couple of PCP's that visit patients at SNF facilities but I am not sure if it will be proper to audit those charts.

    I believe SNF facility documentation is unacceptable for risk adjustment coding, but documentation by physicans of patient visits there is an exception.
